From the Publisher:

The Mitfords were one of the 20th century’s most intriguing and controversial families—glamorous, romantic, and—especially in politics—extreme. Among the six daughters and one son born to Lord and Lady Redesdale were Nancy, the novelist and historian; Diana, the wife of fascist leader Sir Oswald Mosley; Unity, friend of Hitler; Jessica, a communist–turned–investigative journalist; and Deborah, Duchess of Devonshire. Yet, as this intimate portrait shows, the violent disagreements and flamboyant contrasts that characterized the family obscured a powerful affection and a strong underlying unity. Journalist Jonathan Guinness is the elder son of Diana Mosley; Catherine Guinness, a former writer for INTERVIEW magazine, is his daughter.

About the Author:

Jonathan Guinness is the elder son of Diana Mosley by her first marriage to Bryan Guinness, now Lord Moyne. He has worked in journalism and banking. Catherine Guinness is the eldest of his five children. She has been a journalist with Interview magazine and has also worked for a firm of investment advisers. She is married to James, Lord Neidpath, the historian.
